I'm not sure why you have to use that workaround. From your description, the 
sorting should work as you expect. I don't remember there being a bug about 

The title field has to have "Format as a Title" turned on, for the sorting 
to work that way, so check that. And then the "Auto format titles and names" 
option in the settings has to be on, but you mentioned that one already.
